Make Your Point or Make It Work?

It’s the same question whether it’s our nation, where you work, your family or your church – do you want to make your point or do you want to make it work? That may sound simplistic, and perhaps it is. But it’s also true. That’s because it is always a temptation to prove that you are right instead of rolling up your sleeves, engaging other people, learning, growing and joining with them to get something positive done. Certainly you’ll always have opinions. And some of them will be so important the only way you can remain faithful is to refuse to compromise. But most of the time in most situations and with most people, God needs you to be that person who trusts God enough to take the first step to make things work. And you can. Because God’s the one helping you do it.
